After growing up in Raleigh and graduating from Duke Medical School, Dr. Kurt Newman became one of our nation’s leading pediatric surgeons. He is currently the visionary head of Children’s National, which is at the forefront of exhilarating new discoveries in everything from cancer research to mental health care. He wrote this book to help guide parents—not just of sick kids but of all kids —and to share his knowledge of what children need to thrive. Healing Children: A Surgeon's Stories from the Frontiers of Pediatric Medicine is an “astounding and miraculous” (Madeline Levine) medical memoir and Dr. Newman is here to share it with us.
“Kids’ resilience, both physical and emotional, is at the heart of this illuminating and wise book by one of America’s foremost pediatric surgeons.”
